*clash of the titans.

Definitely one of the most exciting things to occur in England while I've been here so far has been the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics...and with the latter ending quite recently...a post was definitely necessary.
 While sports haven't exactly been a major passion of mine [although up to a few years ago some could say that I was a lot more athletic than now O.o] the games have been about far more than athleticism.
In fact, many Brits have marveled at the buzz that now exists amongst themselves, having such a global spotlight on their country.
And if that sense of patriotism isn't enough to provoke inspiration...maybe the determination and fortitude of the athletes is!

Imagine priming yourself for years upon end, putting in all those long hours and hard work...for it to ultimately pay off....for your efforts to be recognized. Must be both an overwhelming and rewarding feeling... that I'm sure we all strive for.

also...the Return of the Spice Girls ... *eeeep*
